Step 1

Step 1: first draw a sketch with the pencil(20-25 transparency) in the canvas or the guide layer. I usually use from 10 to 15 % of my ink.

 

Step 2

Step2: then, pick your colors!XD

 

 

Step 3

Step 3: Now ,lets ad some colours! Lets Start with the skin.
1- base colour- 50-58 transparency (if its over 80,you won’t be able to see the sketch very clearly, unless you drew it in the guide layer).

 

Step 4

Step 4: now the shading! XD (fill tool and airbrush)(transparency 10 to 35)

1-ad a colour that’s a little bit darker than the one you used for the base. (depends on where the light source is).

2-Again, ad a colour that’s darker then the one at 1,then the 2, then the 3…etc. repeat this 4 or 5 times.

3-After, ad some white(20-25 trans. ) (depends on where the light source is)(airbrush)

The colour you used shouldn’t be too dark. You see the little circle in the color palette, that’s the limit.

 

Step 5

Step 5: shading the eyes. ad some details to the face. (fil tool and pencil)

1-retrace in black the sketch you drew earlier.(eyes, nose ,chin ,neck and mouth)

2-put some white around the eyes(70-75 trans.)and on the mouth.

3-put some dark on the eyes.(85-100 trans.)

 

 

Step 6

Step 6: hair and clothe shading.(fill tool am airbrush)

1-it’s a little bit like shading the skin only this time it’s the hair. Start with a base colour (85-95 trans.)


 

Step 7

Step 7: continuation of step 6. exactly the same thing as step 4.

1- ad a colour that’s a little bit darker than the one you used for the base. (depends on where the light source is).

2 - Again, ad a colour that’s darker then the one at 1,then the 2, then the 3…etc. repeat this 4 or 5 times.

3 - After,ad some white(20-25 trans.) (depends on where the light source is)(airbrush)

4-for the clothe, well… I put some dark where there’s folds? Plissement

5-after that, if there’s some ink left, clean up a little.

 

Step 8

Voila!!XD
